Real Wedding: Katie and Rien

#FlashbackFriday to last summer’s breathtaking nuptials between Katie and Rien at the Warwick Melrose Hotel.  Katie stunned her groom and guests in a beautiful Mikaella Bridal, A-line gown of chantilly lace, adorned with a satin sash and floral brooch at the natural waist.  A strapless, scooped neckline was embellished by an added cap-sleeve lace bolero creating an essence of pure, timeless and classic beauty!

Real Wedding: Jennifer & Tito

“I wanted to share my experience of picking a wedding gown as a plus sized bride.  I honestly waited longer than I should have to pick my gown because I was terrified.  I felt that when I would go into a bridal shop, nothing would fit, noses would be turned up to me, and I would end up crying at a time that should be special (all in front of my best friends, sister, and mom).  This sounded pretty horrible, so I just didn’t do it for months.  Knowing that I needed to do this, I searched and found a shop in Dallas called A Curvy Bride *Now known as Molly’s Bridal*.  I went in by myself for my first visit.  I didn’t want to have any of my fears come up in front of anyone.  I spoke with their Sales Rep and she asked me my vision and I explained it to her, I told her my fears, the part of my body that I was most self-conscious about and I told her I needed to set a time to try the gowns on in front of my nearest & dearest women.  She calmed my fear by explaining that every sample gown in their location would fit me and she began to come up with a solution that would allow me to feel comfortable and beautiful on our wedding day.  She NAILED IT.  I loved my dress.  I comfortable and beautiful the entire night.  The dress I found was sleeveless and I DID NOT want to show my arms, so they simply added sleeves.  I had no idea how easy and fun this process would be for me.  The dress was beautiful, timely, and conservative-everything I desired.  If you’re a plus size bride and interested check out A Curvy Bride in Dallas.”

I loved our wedding and I love being married.  If interested, below is a list of the vendors we used.

XOXO Jennifer

Real Bride in Ysa Makino

Sydney’s custom couture YSA Makino mermaid gown was simply fabulous for her springtime wedding in South Dakota – a little bit of sweet and a little bit of sass! The romantic sweetheart neckline and custom beaded straps paired with that fitted lace bodice and dramatic tiered organza skirt created the perfect WOW factor – Congratulations Sydney, you looked gorgeous!
